These are the words of the ACELS. We demand a test…
Things have gone in a completely wrong direction, so we will test out who will be worthy to train mankind. You will have your Chance. Do your best and you will become one of the Chosen.
If you fail, you will be removed. Here and from all our reigns. We have seen enough. Take this new year as a new Chance.
Why is the refugee crisis all over the news? How is this related to Syria? Why should we care at all?
– Excerpt from the “Galactic Annals” at the beginning of 3049, translated by the automatic language decoder software of GARGANTUA Supercomputer:
The beginning is a very delicate matter. You need to know the galaxy’s the year 3049. The planet Union is governed by Junker Andwa D’Ajema.
The most important matter in the known universe is the “essence”. The “essence” appears in all sorts of forms, as a gas, liquid, but the most common form of differently colored crystals.
If you use the “essence” wisely, it generates energy. Force. Movement. But if used negative it leads to suppression. To combat. To war. Humans against other creatures. Humans against humans, nations against nations, planets against planets.
From the sad experience of two great galactic wars and countless confrontations before, between and after the Council of Galakticon decided to set up protection zones in the galaxy for the planet whose level of development is so far back that they are not yet capable to participate in the life of the other civilized galaxy. And a directive of the Galakticon forbids others to intrude into the matters of these people.
This was not always observed in the past. But there were reasons for that.
One of these protected areas is called “Emerald sector”. In it is a very primitive planet.
Its name is “earth”. From this primitive world a reputation in the expanses of the universe has been issued recently. The call for a meeting at a secret location. And I know why.
The world is changing. I can feel it in the water. I can feel it in the earth. I can smell it in the air.
There’s been an awakening. Can you feel it? The dark side … and the light…
On ASTROCOHORS IV we try to make a chronology of great adventures and texts, stories and reports. Videos are one side – texts are the other. Just you see. We’re up and running.
This is an embedded YouTube video. This is how some parts of the internet work. And this is the description! No one ever reads these, so why even bother!?
On the other hand, I could make you curious by writing something like: WHAT I SAW HERE CHANGED MY LIFE!!!
In the end, Saruman tries to defend himself with an Internet meme. He fails. Sad.

Well, if we could only understand more of this. All that I can see is just another Dragon Tree.
If you have a message, you are always in need of bringing it to people. On this day, Matt Mullenweg presented one possible way of doing so and changed the world of internet and blogs forever: WordPress was brought into public.
b2/cafelog, more commonly known as simply b2 or cafelog, was the precursor to WordPress. b2/cafelog was estimated to have been installed on approximately 2,000 blogs as of May 2003. It was written in PHP for use with MySQL by Michel Valdrighi, who is now a contributing developer to WordPress. Although WordPress is the official successor, another project,b2evolution, is also in active development.
WordPress first appeared in 2003 as a joint effort between Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little to create a fork of b2. Christine Selleck Tremoulet, a friend of Mullenweg, suggested the nameWordPress.
WordPress Version 0.7: Used the same file structure as its predecessor, b2/cafelog, and continued the numbering from its last release, 0.6. Only 0.71-gold is available for download in the official WordPress Release Archive page.
Yet another milestone on the development of this story, and history itself.
And the story still goes on…

In the chaotic world of OCs and 72-chapter sagas, only one man can save the day. And that man is you (unless you are a lady then it is a lady.) However, that (wo)man is going to need some help to tame the wild Fanfiction frontier. This is a video that will change his/her life forever… [Reader Insert, Rated T]

March 1989… Tim Berners-Lee writes the first draft of his paper Information Management: A Proposal, about the development of a World Wide Web. The INTERNET was born. And it needed an Overture. Something like Also sprach Zarathustra in 2001 – A Space Odyssey. Or… something like that above. Whatever fits.
